1. Laugavegur and Fimmvorduhals Pass
With more beauty and diverse landscape than you can ever hope to see on one trek, Iceland offers it all in the fall before the snow takes over and turns this island into an icy wonderland. Prepare for colder temperatures, but this 50-mile, four-day hike will allow you to see the results of volcanic eruptions, open plains, and gorgeous mountains that only Iceland can offer. If you take the “scenic route”, which is really saying something in Iceland, this hike can take you to the famous Icelandic landmark, the Skogafoss waterfall.
